Thousands of protesters gather outside Chuck Schumer’s apartment
At NYPost by A Taylor, CPerez --
Thousands of angry demonstrators gathered outside Sen. Chuck Schumer’s luxury Brooklyn apartment building — holding up signs and chanting “What the f–k, Chuck?!” — to protest his lukewarm stance on President Trump’s cabinet picks.
“Senator Schumer needs to know we’re watching him,” fumed Brad Wolchansky, a 40-year-old soccer coach from Flatbush who was carrying a cardboard cut-out of a giant eye on Tuesday night.
“He works for us. We need him to be bold. We need him to stand up to Trump and oppose his picks,” Wolchansky said.
He and roughly 3,000 others gathered at Grand Army Plaza at around 6 p.m. before eventually making their way over to Schumer’s building at 9 Prospect Park West, between Carroll and President streets.
As they marched, the anti-Trump demonstrators waved signs saying “Resist Trump” and “Show Some Spine Schumer” — while also chanting things like “stay strong Chuck” and “shut it down, shut it down, New York is an immigrant town.”
